Matt Lasley | GC News-Gazette Grayson County Sheriff’s Office personnel responded to a two-vehicle crash on Wax Road that injured five people on Sunday afternoon, May 14.

Five people were taken to the hospital following a crash at the intersection of Wax Road and Grayson Springs Road in Wax on Sunday afternoon, June 14.

At approximately 4:28 p.m. on Sunday, Grayson County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO), Wax Volunteer Fire Department, Clarkson Volunteer Fire Department, and Grayson County Emergency Medical Services (GCEMS) personnel responded to the crash.

Prior to the crash, a 2014 Ford Fiesta SE, driven and owned by Leslie Terry, 19, of Whiteland, IN, had stopped on Grayson Springs Road to make a left turn onto Wax Road, according to responding GCSO Deputy Jarrod Mudd.

Terry told police that she did not see anyone coming when she pulled onto Wax Road in front of a 2003 Buick LeSabre, driven and owned by 79-year-old Marion Bishop, of Cub Run, and travelling straight on Wax Road through the intersection, Mudd said.

The two cars then collided at the intersection, injuring everyone inside both vehicles, Mudd said.

Also in the Ford at the time of the wreck was Jacob Tester, 19, of Greenwood, IN, and also in the Buick were Doris Bishop, 81, and Micheal Boatwright, 44, both of Cub Run, according to a GCSO accident report by Mudd.

Terry had to be extricated from the Ford by fire department personnel, the report read.

Terry, Tester, Marion and Doris Bishop, and Boatwright were all transported from the scene to the hospital to receive medical treatment for accident-related injuries, Mudd said.

Doris Bishop was flown from the scene by an AirMethods emergency helicopter to receive medical treatment at University of Louisville Hospital.
